Austin-based nutrigenomic testing company helping patients determine personalized nutritional solutions to improve their health has grown by 220 percent since launch
#mce_temp_url#Genomix Nutrition, a provider of affordable genetic testing offered through medical professionals, is celebrating its one-year anniversary. Launched in April 2016, the Austin-Texas based company, which uses a simple cheek swab for DNA analysis, nutritional and health recommendations to assist with a provider’s treatment protocol, has grown by 220 percent over the last year, and, as of January 2017, is working with more than 250 providers across the US, UK, Canada and Ireland to offer the test with approximately 500+ test runs per month.
Developed by Chief Science Officer Dr. Kendal Stewart, M.D., Genomix Nutrition’s nutrigenomic tests have been built on findings from his treatment of thousands of patients and are driving advances in a field where the American medical system is woefully behind its peers.
“Our nutrigenomic tests tell patients what nutritional supplements they need, but most importantly what they don’t need,” said Dr. Stewart. “Our focus is on helping patients determine their genetic weaknesses and identifying solutions to improve their health, healing or potential health problems.”
Genomix Nutrition works with medical providers across the globe to provide nutrigenomic testing techniques which look at either 26 or 55 genes, rather than all 20,000+ genes in the human genome, and provide recommendations specifically tailored to an individual’s genetic makeup.
The test, performed in just a few minutes, presents patients with customized, genetic evaluations as well as suggested solutions, based upon results which examine mutated or modified genes that are essential to being healthy – since each genetic polymorphism can give insight into why or if a person may have health challenges.
“We’re seeing tremendous demand for affordable and personalized nutrigenomic testing,” added Kara Stewart-Mullens, CEO of Genomix Nutrition. “Genomix Nutrition has grown rapidly in our first year and we are pleased that more and more providers and patients are recognizing the health benefits of genetic testing.”
At the same time, Genomix Nutrition is also helping hundreds of medical professionals it works with achieve a higher patient satisfaction and success rate by providing them with an easy, affordable tool that provides a report of a patient’s unique DNA, accesses issues and need for metabolic support, and the specific nutritional elements required to overcome these genetic challenges for each person.
In the coming weeks, Genomix Nutrition will be participating in the Texas Medical Association conference in Houston. Dr. Stewart will also be lecturing at the International Association of Certified Clinical Nutritionists as well as teaching several hundred providers at the Genomix Nutrition Advanced Genetic Workshops for 2017 in Ft. Lauderdale and San Diego.
